To be fair subscribers have no option with what they get. They were allowed to return this figure though, at loss of shipping which might be the real reason few returned her. I would be curious how many are complaining about the free gift got a Frosta that was assembled correctly but are just upset that they aren't getting free what they wanted.
Without a sub we became regular retail fodder. Retail lines have stuff like this all the time, and they may or may not also send out a corrected figure. And the only way you may know before purchase is seeing it in person. In a possible way we benefit also, as long as those who don't want their free figures don't charge too much for what they get in trying to sell the stuff. Sadly I see many still trying to get full price for some of the less desired figures. USPS priority shipping is ~7 bucks for these guys and you can charge the person 5 bucks on top of that and it's still more than what you had before .
